Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0908913A2] The invention relates to a thermostat for adjusting the temperature in electric appliances, of the type comprising a temperature probe holding a liquid herein, the volume of said liquid changing depending on the temperature and a capillary element transmitting the volume variation to a membrane held inside a box-like body. The membrane transmits its volume variation to a non conductive material pad, through a metal lever, pivoted to a side of the box-like body, to which it is rigidly applied, so that the pad is caused to drive a metal blade from a first position, in which the blade provides an electrical connection between an input terminal and a first output terminal, and a second position, in which the blade provides an electrical connection between the input terminal and a second output terminal, in order to drive an alternative device. <IMAGE>
